programming:(Short for resource editor) A program from Apple which allows you to modify resources graphically. You can edit icons, menus, dialog boxes or get deep into the hexadecimal world of software. The current version is ResEdit 2.1.1, which handles resources in System 7. Not for beginners or the faint of heart. BMUG publishes "Zen and the Art of Resource Editing", an excellent primer. Always always always work on a copy of the resource.
